The University of Arizona Commitment Statement to Join the Action Collaborative Partner Network
The University of Arizona (UArizona) is committed to and will actively participate in the Action Collaborative Partner Network. We commit to sharing information about our institutions efforts and innovations in preventing and addressing sexual harassment.

The fellow will complete any necessary paperwork to maintain the university’s participation in the partner network. They will provide any materials or reports necessary to the Partner Network in order to stay active.
